Tell us a bit about yourself and how you came to be at The Clock Tower Sanctuary

I’m a freelance management consultant, specialising in project management, technology strategy and business change. One of my previous clients is Pret A Manger, whose charitable trust The Pret Foundation is a corporate supporter of The Clock Tower Sanctuary. I was recommended to CTS by the Head of The Pret Foundation and I joined as a Trustee in 2017. In September 2019, I took over as Chair from Georgina.

What do you like most about working at The Clock Tower Sanctuary?

I’m really taken by the positivity, enthusiasm and optimism that our staff and volunteers bring to the organisation. I come away from every meeting feeling motivated and inspired to continually improve. Also, volunteering at The Clock Tower Sanctuary gives me a reason to get out of London (where I live) and spend time in Brighton, a city I really enjoy visiting.

What’s your favourite teatime treat?

A soy flat white and a cinnamon bun please.
